Birchbox Love and Inspiration

Incredibly inspired! So many great things around me.. fall is here, eyeshadow colors are are shimmery and light, warm lips are back in style. Love it!Oh and best of all my birchbox came in the mail! If you aren't familiar with Birchbox yet.. well you need to be. Its an amazing company that send you 5-6 sample sized items per month of amazing high quality beauty products..best of all... only $10! Cant beat that!

This month I received an amazing  Zoya nail polish, cute hair band, Kate Spades delicious new scent, Supersmiles' Whitening Toothpaste, and an amaaazzzinngg lip plumper!

(I was so excited when it came in the mail!!) For anyone interested in purchasing their very own Birchbox, or perhaps sending one to someone else you love click the link below and get this party started!
So while we are on the topic of inspiration I thought I'd post a few pictures of things that have been inspiration to me this week. Enjoy!

This one was done by my talented friend Tricia Davidge. She is an amazing photographer, and she did this super fun and funky makeup as well! I saw it and had to share! If you want your picture taken, and have a flare for fun and all things dramatic, check her out!

Okay, this photo needs no introduction... It's Chanel. It's Nude. It's Chanel... haha. Come'on.
This one really inspired me. I did a photoshoot a few weeks back with an amazing photographer (Deven Carter) and he captured this beautiful photo of a great friend and gorgeous woman, Kimberly Riffel. I really enjoy this one because she has such a fun edgy style, but its also very feminine. This photo captured the essence of her as a person, and best of all he got a great shot of the makeup I did ;)

This one really inspired me. After checking out the shots that Deven took I saw this photo and got extremely excited. It made me feel very proud, and truly grateful. I am blessed to be able to do something this awesome, and I am blessed to have someone amazing in my life who helps me reach the goals I set for myself. To end this one, here is something I found to be extraordinary, and delightful for print work.

WOW WOW WOW. Amazing right? Origami Eyelashes... yes please. Thank you Paperself.com  :)

How could I have forgot to show you all my ridiculous Halloween outfit??

Nicki Minaj.. you are welcome for doing you justice. ;)

Sugarpill Cosmetics

Okay, so this eyeshadow palette says enough right? RIGHT! 

I came across this cosmetics brand a few months back when searching for potent, high quality eyeshadow colors to utilize for my more avant guarde makeup applications. 

Between Sugarpills eyeshadow colors and Sigmas brush line... well I hate to say it but M.A.C better watch out : /  

The price point on these palletes is actually pretty similar, however the single eyshadows are priced a bit lower than M.A.C and you receive quite a bit more eyeshadow in terms of volume. 

Either way you cant go wrong.. M.A.C, Sugarpill, Sigma.. all great brands, and all will give you the desired results for a flawless look. 

Since we are on the note of crazy fun makeup.. has anyone else seen Heidi Klums most recent makeup application?? This was AMAZING! She is well known for her insane Halloween costumes, and this time she was taking no prisoners. The makeup artist did an immaculate job with detail. Every vein, vessel, and tendon looks exquisite and realistic. The bald cap application also caught my attention... very precise, with no weird layovers or hair bumps. (anyone who has ever created their own latex baldcap knows what I'm talking about).

I want to see what you guys were for Halloween! Post some pics to my makeup page! http://www.facebook.com/pages/Makeup-by-Brittany/163993420306689
